Ice water!!

We took a trip to the city yesterday, this is some of the scenery on the way there!
We have to go through a canyon (Big Horn Sheep Canyon ) to get there.
The last time we saw A bunch of older rams with massive horns, of course I didn't
have the camera last time!

Had to wait for a few minutes to get this shot.  Thought I was going to have to settle for a
butt shot!  Its like they were saying picture this! LOL!


This is the Arkansas River.  There are some places where it is totally covered with snow and ice!

Look how high the  snow is above the water!  Yikes!

This water is cold in the summer, talk about ice water!

Here I am standing on a platform that hangs over the river.  This is looking up
the river.

And this is looking down river from the same spot.
I love this drive!
No matter what time of year you take it there is always something to see.
We did see the pair of Bald Eagles before coming across the Big Horn Sheep,
but one was to far away for a good shot and the other one was fishing!  We
would of had to stop in the middle of the road to get a picture.  Not a good idea
on a windy canyon road!
